A FORMER Coronation Street star has shocked fans by posing completely NAKED on Instagram in a racy snap.
Adam Rickitt – who is known for playing Nick Tilsley in the ITV soap – showed off his bare behind as he sprawled on his staircase at home.
Adam, 44, showed off his back muscles and butt as he posed with his back to the camera in the black and white photograph.
Taking to Instagram, he held on to the railings and the floating stair case as he revealed his shoulder and back tattoos.
Nick held his head down, hiding his face from view as he looked down towards a vape which he had placed on the stair underneath him.
“Annual Holiday Butt Shot moment,” he captioned the post, which delighted fans – who took to the comments to gush over him.
“Dude, you still got it,” one wrote, as a second chimed in: “Eeeh Adam! The cheek of it! Or rather the cheeks of it!”
It comes after fans were left shocked by Adam looking completely different from his Coronation Street character – 25 years on.
Adam, who also appeared in Hollyoaks, looks a world away from the guy who stole Leanne Battersby’s heart back in the day.
During his time on the cobbles, the heartthrob was known for his blonde curtains, gorgeous smile, and abs you could grate cheese on.
Today, although still handsome, he looks nothing like that hunk viewers of a certain age will remember, sporting stubble and darker hair with a short back and sides.
Before returning for a couple of stints, Adam originally left Corrie in 1999 for a career in music, signing a six-album deal with Polydor – although he ultimately only released one, called Good Times.
The singer’s first single, Breathe Again, shot to number five, but the album made it no further than number 41 in the charts and the record company subsequently dropped him.
Adam also had a brief career in politics with the Conservatives, appearing on Question Time as a potential candidate in 2006 but later failing to find a seat to stand in.
Despite his failure to step any deeper into the world of politics, he later covered the Conservative party conference for ITV’s Daybreak.
In 2014, the star joined the pop group 5th Story on The Big Reunion before taking up as Kyle Kelly in Hollyoaks in 2017 until his character’s heartbreaking suicide.
